IS REAL FM A “CHRISTIAN” STATION?
We think the word “Christian” is better used as a noun than an adjective. But yeah, the people running Real FM are Christians, and we’re not trying to hide that at all. Our mission is to share hope in Jesus. But Real FM is just a space for people to gather and grow, and everybody is welcome. Some songs and conversations on Real FM are directly spiritual in nature and others aren’t, because we believe God is relevant to every aspect of our lives.
IS REAL FM FAMILY-FRIENDLY?
Yeah, usually! How’s that for an honest answer? Look, you’ll never hear anything profane on Real FM, ever. But we also aren’t going to shy away from addressing the gritty stuff of life, even when it’s a bit uncomfortable. We know lots of kids who LOVE listening to Real FM, and we think that's awesome! You have our promise: if we are about to get into something you really may not want your kids to hear, we’ll give you a heads up.
HOW DO YOU CHOOSE THE MUSIC YOU PLAY?
We play whatever music is trending right now, whether it’s pop, hip-hop, or songs that are hard to categorize. You’ll probably hear a little bit of everything, but we’ll do our best to keep it accessible to as many people as possible. Whether you think we’re getting it right or missing the mark, we’d love to hear your feedback.
WILL YOU PLAY MUSIC FROM LOCAL OR INDIE BANDS?
For sure! Many of the artists we play aren’t signed to major record labels. That said, the songs we play have to fit with our accessible sound and meet a high level of production quality. If you make music that meets that criteria, send us your best song and we’ll take a listen.
SO IS REAL FM GOING TO BE ON AN ACTUAL FM SIGNAL AT SOME POINT OR WHAT?
We really hope so. We're actively seeking opportunities to put Real FM on the radio, but it's easier said than done. In the meantime, we're excited about Real FM's growing reach as a mobile app.
